Both Red House and Tyrsal are related to winners but fellow newcomer Royal Warrior is of more interest on breeding. His dam is a half-sister to the useful Fibresand specialist Dubai Hills and Alan McCabe's charge is worth noting for any strong support in the betting. Far Gaze never threatened despite finishing third on his debut at Wolverhampton last week behind stablemate Outback Lover. However, EL DUQUE had beaten the latter at Lingfield before that and Bill Turner's colt gets the nod in the opener on that basis.
El Duque 7-2 (8-12) Dwelt in rear, ridden 2f out, ran on inside final furlong, nearest finish, 4th of 8, 3 1/2l behind M'selle (9-0) at Lingfield 5f 2yo mdn stks (5) pol in Mar.
Far Gaze (IRE) 10-1 (8-9) Slowly into stride, outpaced in rear, switched outside over 1f out, ridden and stayed on inside final furlong to take 3rd near finish, no impression with front pair, 3rd of 5, 7l behind Outback Lover (8-1) at Wolverhampton 5f 2yo mdn auc stks (5) pol in Mar.
